Researchers report gaseous elemental mercury observations from Churchill, in the heart of the Latrobe Valley’s coal power generation fleet from June of 2013. Mercury values both day and night were significantly higher than the Southern Hemispheric average values.
As part of the Future Seas project, this paper summarizes knowledge and perspectives on ocean literacy from a range of disciplines, including but not exclusive to marine biology, socio-ecology, philosophy, technology, psychology, oceanography and human health.
UMELB01: TRENDS OF FOSSIL FUEL AND POLLUTANT EMISSIONS IN SOUTHEAST ASIAN CITIES BASED ON SATELLITE DATA AND MACHINE LEARNINGAugust 24, 2020 2:40 pm Comments Off on UMELB01: TRENDS OF FOSSIL FUEL AND POLLUTANT EMISSIONS IN SOUTHEAST ASIAN CITIES BASED ON SATELLITE DATA AND MACHINE LEARNING
In this project the student will apply a new algorithm to map the expansion of cities across Southeast Asia. Combining this with proxies of energy consumption and fossil fuel emission the student will establish trends in regional emissions and project these emission trends into the future.
Presenter: Dr. Jennifer Vanos (School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning Arizona State University) The human body deals with a range of atmospheric stressors that are exacerbated in urban areas, including extreme heat and air pollution. Children gain a large percentage of their activity at school or within playgrounds, and in general, spend more time outdoors than adults often at times of peak heat and air pollution. A range of health ailments may arise from overexposures to these ambient factors,... View Article
UNSW07: Identifying the cumulative burden of air pollution on human health in a climate changed AustraliaJuly 19, 2019 7:00 am Comments Off on UNSW07: Identifying the cumulative burden of air pollution on human health in a climate changed Australia
This project will explore different methods of assessing cumulative exposure to air pollution in order to make suggestions as to how we might best make policy recommendations that protect the health of all Australians, including vulnerable communities.
When Chilean researcher Dr Erasmo Macaya from Universidad de Concepción and Centro IDEAL stumbled upon foreign kelp washed up on an Antarctic beach, he knew he had found something significant. Research by an international, multidisciplinary team of scientists reveals just how important that finding was.
Asthmatics and those affected by polluted environments living around major cities along Australia’s east coast could find life much harder over the next 50 years as stronger inversion layers caused by climate change trap more pollution.
